Conference Sneak Peek: Julie Just

Literary agent Julie Just spent sixteen years working at the New York Times, where she went from Deputy Editor of the Children's and Young Adult coverage in the Book Review to the Editor. For an interview from Publisher's Weekly in 2005 that featured her move to the Editor post, click here. In 2010 she moved to a position as an agent with the esteemed agency Janklow & Nesbit, where she's been building a list of middle-grade and YA fiction, as well as graphic novels and children's and adult's narrative nonfiction (biography, history). We look forward to hearing from Julie when she comes in April, sharing her perspective as someone who covered writing for children in a newspaper to someone who's actively searching for great writing for children.
